MĀHOE HOPE DESCRIBES "THE SECOND TWIN" POLLUX OF GEMINI
‘Ike Hōkū (star knowledge) is inspired by Martha Noyes and is based on certain ancient O‘ahu-centric perspectives. Calendar systems are unique to place, era and lineage.
MĀHOE HOPE REFERS TO POLLUX (SECOND TWIN OF GEMINI)
Māhoe Hope is a term for Pollux (second twin). Another word that describes the nature of Nā Māhoe is the word Kaulua. The solar year can be divided into complementary pairs with the balance point (lua) at the summer solstice. When Kāne (as the sun) passes near Nā Māhoe at the summer solstice, the solar year has reached a place of balance (kaulua).

Solar Cycle Events • O‘ahu Solar Zenith, July 15th & 16th at 12:37pm
The sun is returning from its northernmost point- Ke Alanui Polohiwa a Kāne (Tropic of Cancer). On July 15th & 16th at 12:37pm a solar zenith occurs on O'ahu. A solar zenith occurs twice a year when the sun is directly overhead at solar noon. Because the sun is directly above, vertical objects appear to cast little to no shadow. At the instance of the solar zenith an axis is formed from the sun through the crown of the head to the center of the earth.
